Mid-Year Math Review

Each year we identify 3 key outcomes for each grade that greatly represent the foundational outcomes at each level.  The outcomes identified are shown below.  To help review these concepts the students have been provided with study packages that consist of previous quizzes from class as well as practice review work from the text.  We are going over all of these materials in class and video will be supplied of these review.  This will allow students a way to review independently using the provided materials on paper, the videos online, and help within the classroom.

In addition: students are being assigned further review materials from the text to help ensure they are prepared for the test next Friday.
